Point cloud video provides 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF) viewing experiences to allow users to freely select the viewing angles of 3D scenes and is expected to be the next-generation video. This paper studies the point cloud video streaming and proposes a fuzzy logic-based point cloud video streaming scheme to solve the inherent technical issues. In particular, a point cloud video is first partitioned into smaller tiles, along with a low-quality base layer covering the entire video. Each tile is encoded into different quality levels, and both the compressed and uncompressed (i.e., decoded) versions of each tile are prepared for selection. Then, based on the user’s viewing angle and predicted future network bandwidth condition, fuzzy logic empowered quality level selection, with properly defined novel fuzzification, fuzzy rules, and defuzzification, is conducted to maximize the received point cloud video quality under the communication resource, computational resource and quality requirements constraints. Extensive simulations based on real point cloud video sequences and network traces are conducted, and the results reveal the superiority of the proposed scheme over the baseline scheme. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work studying point cloud video streaming using fuzzy logic.
